Not sure if this is a genuine post or an advertisement... I guess we will find out if this Dr. actually replies back... but I have seen this rapid detox first hand, and although it can be a life saver for some, it still requires a complete lifestyle change and Counseling to make sure the Patient doesn't fall back into old habits and relapse. However, this does give them a good start if they remain on the right track. Unfortunately, it is very cost-prohibitive for most people.
Hey, dummy; read a little closer-
. We also inject Naltrexone (Vivitrol, approved by FDA) intramuscularly so the patient does not relapse for 30 days. Aftercare is just one Vivitro injection every 30 days administered by patient's hometown doctor.
These injections' purpose is so patients CAN't "fall back into old habits"
Nurse? Doubtful.
Candystriper? Maybe
And btw, "marta" and all the other geniuses who feel the need to type to themselves, make sure you at least change your usename-- it makes you look stupid in addition to having mental problems
